Hello Everyone,

I considering moving to Nimes, France to be with my boyfriend. I'm overwhelmed on where to start. I'm sending off for my Passport so that's checked off lol.
Where should I begin?

Thanks,
Dlady22

Dlady22,

Well it would be difficult to give advice without more info.
1. What type of Visa and how long?
2. Do plan on working, studying, ..?
3. Will you be living in your own apartment or living with your boyfriend?
4. Do you speak French to any degree?
5. Are you moving there with furniture, car, or pets?
6. Where are you moving from - US, Euro country, somewhere else?
7. And many more

We are an American couple who are retiring to Nîmes next spring from southern CA. We joined an English speaking social organisation in Nîmes called BritsNîmes. Joining in with their activities is making the transition a lot easier for us.

One piece of advice is to contact a French relocation company. There are two that I know of:
1. PleaseHelp.fr
2. Renestance.com

Anyway, as you can see, everyone has a different situation and these companies can be a big help.

Best of luck,
Ron & Suzanne

HI Ron & Suzanne,

Thanks for your quick response.
1. Ok so I know the Visa is only good for 90 days then I'm not sure what to do. Need to research that!
2. I may work part time
3. I'll be living with my boyfriend
4. Uh working on the French language haha
5. The only thing I'm moving are my clothing. I'm selling everything else. I don't have any pets or young children.
6. I'm moving from the U.S. Texas
Thanks again for the info I truly appreciate it and break a leg (I'm an Artist) on your move, that's so cool!

Yours Truly,
Lesa

Dlady22,

First of all there is no such thing as a 90 day visa. You are a visitor the first 90 days. You need a Visa to stay more than 90 days.

Second, you cannot work - at all - without a specific type of Visa.

It sounds to me you need to go to www.parisunraveled.com with Allison Lounes. She helps young people like yourself, especially if you want to work at all.

Also, go to the Consulate General web site of France in the city near you. You can learn a lot about Visas etc.

Thanks so much for all this information. I appreciate and I'll keep you posted (if you two don't mind). My plans are to move in November before Thanksgiving if possible. Thanks again!

Take Care,
Lesa

I wholeheartedly endorse hiring a professional company to help you with obtaining your visa and other work required for you to legally become a French resident. Because I was moving alone with little previous experience in cross country moves, I contracted with Pleasehelp.fr and the company held my hand through the whole process. They are fabulous. Here’s their website. A call is free.

careful about that website paris unraveled. It's got potential security issues, also there are reports of people being scammed!
